Check out this game called Skyrates!

platform: web browser with Flash

narrative genre: WWI-style air pirate/trading. Think Sky Captain, Last Exile, or Crimson Skies.

player action: plot way-points between floating islands/cities to trade goods between them, wait a few real-time hours, fight bandits in a top-down view using keyboard controls, upgrade your plane, and repeat. Short bursts of actions with nice hour(s)-long waits so you can do the work you’re supposed to be doing in the office/school. 🙂

Come play and send me a note so we can form a Wing (clan, guild…)!
